Career Summary

Biography

I currently work as a research assistant in the Physical Health in Mental Illness (PHiMI) research team, led by Professor Jenny Bowman.  This research team addresses preventive care for smoking, nutrition, alcohol and physical activity, for people with a mental health condition.  The research is highly collaborative, with a focus on implementation and the integration of chronic disease preventive care in mental health settings. 

The current project I am contributing to will focus on building the capacity of community mental health services to provide preventive care covering three local health districts.

I have a B.Psych (Hons 1) completed 2016 - 2019.  Prior to studying and becoming a Research Assistant in 2017, my career was in the public service. I am a professional project manager with expertise in developing and implementing initiatives across organisations which are aligned to strategic directions. My biggest strengths are the ability to deliver on project outcomes, work collaboratively with stakeholders to ensure engagement for implementation and solve problems.
